... turns out a cyclist had gone off the road and hurt himself pretty badly. When we arrived the MedFlight helicopter was just taking off. The pass was interesting because most of the drive was on dirt. The RAM did very well - that what it is made for. We also traveled along Taylor Reservoir - one of many huge lakes in Colorado.
We look forward to visiting Randy and Dori again in the future. They live in a beautiful area.

While traveling through the pass, Sheila and I stopped to have a bit of a snowball fight.

My favorite mountain as an intermediate skier in the Aspen area was Snowmass. My second favorite was Ajax. I didn’t make it to Highlands this trip, but the last time I went I felt like they had less to offer a skier at my level. Buttermilk was okay, ...
... A cute place, pretty small, friendly staff. Looked in a few stores on Main Street, including a great little used book store called Ole Man Berkins - I couldn't help but buy a couple of books. Back to the condo, then on to the slopes. We did a few green runs, then up to the top of Peak 9 and came down Bonanza (blue) on to some greens (Lower American) etc. Then dressed for dinner and walked to Briar Rose Chop House - excellent! We had good cocktails - ...
